Who We Are
The All Academy & ROTC Parents Club was organized in 2003 by a group of parents and friends of college students who attend our nation's service academies, or who will be commissioned as officers when they graduate from colleges where they participate in ROTC programs.
We are a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 Tennessee-based organization whose volunteer membership comprises parents and friends of these students, as well as previous graduates from these institutions.
Our Mission is to support students and the families of those attending the United States Military Academy, the United States Naval Academy, the United States Air Force Academy, or any other military college, and those students from Tennessee that are enrolled in a ROTC program.
We assist our nations service academies in their efforts to identify and recruit high school students interested in pursuing a military education, and educate the community about these opportunities.
We hold events during the year that raise money support for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). These events are the WWP's Soldier Ride, where we host wounded soldiers in an organized charity bike rally, and the All Academy & ROTC Ball where we recognize and honor those young Tennesseans who are pursuing collegiate military leadership training.
What is the Wounded Warrior Project?
The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. It was founded in 2002 by a group of retired military personnel, some of whom had been injured in recent conflicts.
The WWP provides comfort and support to injured soldiers not covered by military or other government programs. Beginning at the bedside of the severely wounded, WWP offers programs and services such as WWP Backpacks, benefits counseling, advocacy, family assistance, the Wounded Warrior Disabled Sports Project, WWP Outdoors, and the Soldier Ride. These programs and services are designed to ease the burdens of these heros and their families, aid in the recovery process, and smooth the transtition back to civilian life.
Since 2006, our club has helped to raise over $225,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
